Safer North Devon aims to reduce crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour across Northern Devon.
Our work is targeted towards thematic delivery areas supported by a multi-agency team and managed by the Community Safety Partnership board.
The priorities of our communities locally are tackled in a number of ways.
The Safer Devon Partnership commision services across Devon and drive the development of best practice in all shared service areas.
Safer North Devon works to influence and compliment this work, and meet local needs by developing partnerships and ultimately joint projects to improve outcomes for our local communities. There are similar community safety partnerships across Devon (South Devon and Dartmoor covering South HamsTeignbridge and West Devon; Exeter CSP and East and Mid Devon CSP.
We support the existing work around local neighbourhood management projects, community groups and residents associations where they are working in an area of defined need for crime or anti-social behavior and where our expertise can add to the agreed outcomes for an area.
As a partnership we work across the whole of Northern Devon. Our action plans mainly deliver outcomes across our whole area with some directed to specific neighbourhoods of greatest needs.
We work closely with Neighbourhood Policing teams who are listening to your concerns using police surgeries, local meetings, door-to-door enquiries and surveys.
Any information you supply, along with other partner consultation allows our teams to identify the top priorities to both influence where our thematic work gets delivered and how we support your neighbourhood improvement plans. We also consider all the information you provide through parish plans to give us a picture of local concerns and emerging issues.
Many of our projects are linked directly to the Have your Say process developed by local dedicated Neighbourhood Policing teams, led by Police Officers, supported by Police Community Support Officers, Special Constables and Neighbourhood Wardens, working with all relevant partner agencies.
Crime levels continue to fall in our area, however we continue to work hard to improve public confidence and ensure you can enjoy a safe environment wherever you live across Northern Devon.
